The Clear Water Bay Peninsula must be one of the most beautiful places in Hong Kong. When the weather is good, it'll be unforgivable if we don't spend some time there. It's quite accessible even by public transport. One takes the MTR and get off at Diamond Hill and then take the No. 91 bus and go right to the terminus, then walk about 5 to 10 minutes to the starting point of the path which leads uphill and just follow the trail until one reaches the middle of the footpath leading to the Tin Hau Temple (the "Big Temple) just another 10 minutes walk away, quite close to the entrance to the Clear Water Bay Country Club. This is exactly what I did.
It's the Clear Water Bay right in the middle cordoned off with floating buoys
In the distance are two small bust-like hillocks
The easy trail leading downhill
In the distance, we see the golf course of the Clear Water Bay Country Club
This is the famous Po Toi O (Cloth Sack Bay) with the motor road trailing the coast.

The sea is glittering with sun light in the light haze
The pier in the middle is the pier serving the Tin Hau Temple or Tai Miu ("the Big Temple").
